We need your help to define the values of Bristol Mental Health
Bristol Mental Health is approaching its first birthday, and to
mark that milestone, we are looking for volunteers to help us
define in simple terms what our values are.
When Bristol Mental Health was created, we decided on four key
principles that would guide the work we do. Those principles are
that we focus on recovery and wellbeing, that we respect equalities
and diversity, that we are psychologically informed in all of the
work we do, and that we co-produce everything we do with service
users, carers and staff.
Those principles can be hard to understand in plain English, and
so we would like to re-write them using words everyone can
understand. Those words will be used whenever we talk to service
users, carers, staff and anyone else with an interest in Bristol
If you have experience using mental health services and think
you could help, or you are interested in giving your thoughts about
how we can make the values behind Bristol Mental Health easier to
understand, we would love to hear from you.
There will be three meetings with Bristol Mental Health staff
between September and November to complete this project, and we are
particularly interested in hearing from anyone who hasn't been
involved in a project with us before. This is your chance to have
your say, get involved and see a change. There is a small
reimbursement available for your time.
If you are interested in joining the team or would like to know
more, please contact Nicola Corrigan, Bristol Mental Health Project
